NEW DELHI: Hours after asking DMK leader Dayanidhi Maran and his brother Kalanithi to move Delhi High Court against the trial court order summoning them as accused in Aircel-Maxis deal case, the Supreme Court today recalled its order after CBI informed about an apex court ruling that all cases arising out of the 2G scam probe have to be heard by the top court.

Just before a bench comprising Justices V Gopalagowda and R Banumathi was about to rise for the lunch break, Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Pinky Anand mentioned on behalf of CBI that all matters arising out of the 2G spectrum scam probe were being heard by a bench headed by Chief Justice of India.

The ASG said there is a specific order of the apex court that any matter arising out of the 2G spectrum case has to be heard by it and no other court in the country shall entertain it.

Taking on record the submission of the ASG, the bench recalled its order and posted it before the bench headed by Chief Justice H L Dattu on February 9.
